.htaccess is a small text file that is located either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to guide the server how it has to address requests when a website or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of commonly used scripts like Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get loads of fake traffic to your site, for example, you can block the access of particular IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to enter a username and a password to view the content. You can also set up URL redirecting or use custom made error pages for your website, prevent other websites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so on. An .htaccess file offers you much more control over your websites and the way they perform.
